SPECIAL NOTES: ***This is primarily a road ride, There are only about 2 miles of bike trails on this route*** Basic Info Yes, it is true. we will be beering and clamming, with a little cycling thrown in too. We are going to be cycling a 50-mile road loop starting in Newburyport, following a mix of country roads with some secondary state highways through Salisbury, Seabrook, Hampton, Exeter, Kingston, Newton, Amesbury, and back to the cars in Newburyport . It will run 50 miles give or take. We'll ride the route counter-clockwise and finish with lunch somewhere in Nbpt. If you wish a friend to meet us for lunch after we should be at the restaurant by 12 pm. This is a lengthy ride that can range from 4 to 5+ hours; please only sign up if you are prepared to complete the trip spinning continuously without significant stopping. Although we will start out as one group, more often than not, within the 1st few miles the main group will fragment into smaller groups riding at various paces. The average moving pace of this ride will be around 15 mph. Those riding ABOVE or BELOW the expected average pace MUST either print out the CUE sheet for the route or have the MAP FILE installed on their GPS device. Faster riders are always encouraged to go on ahead if they choose to. The itinerary and cues are posted here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30037210 Please bring proper hydration and food, or means to pick up both en route. We'll stop by consensus along the way. Assuming a 12pm finish, please join us for beer and food somewhere in Nbpt afterward. ***** Start point will be the Nock Middle School on 70 Low Street in Newburyport, which has free parking. We encourage car pooling for those who are comfortable doing so. The commuter rail is not a viable option for this ride as the earliest train gets to Newburyport at 10:30am. ***** If you cannot find us, or are running late, text or call me: 978.518.9138 Tom
